I have suffered with rheumatoid arthritis for 16 year's, in which time I've been prescribed many drug's. For the past 3/4 year's I've been receiving Remicade (infliximab) which seems to be keeping thing's at bay!
Enter new consultant. I've seen her for a matter of minutes on two occasions, the last being 3 weeks ago when she tried to reduce my treatment because I looked good, plus told me I didn't need a new knee just by glancing at my deformed left knee encased in jeans. Without seeing any notes from my past 3 consultants or looking at xrays.
I've now received a letter telling me I'm going to be infused with the cheapest of the two similar drug's called "Remsima" or "Infectquestion, my question is, have anyone any knowledge of either or these drug's as i've looked on line and they seem to still being tested. I'm obviously concerned because I've no wish to go back from where Remicade has saved me from.
Many Thanks for your time.
